‘Babar should bat down the order against Zimbabwe’ Hafeez


Karachi: Veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez thinks limited-over captain Babar Azam should bat in the middle-order to experience different scenarios.

“I think Babar should bat down the order and a new opening pair should be tried and access their abilities,” Hafeez said on Kamran Akmal’s YouTube show.

“If Babar plays besides his original batting position, he should raise his skills of batting down the order against Zimbabwe,” he added.

The former captain also believed that Pakistan management should give chances to youngsters in the upcoming series.

“I think it is the best opportunity to give more exposure to the younger players. We should not repeat the mistake of selecting full squad as we did in 2018 Zimbabwe’s tour,” he maintained.

It must be noted that the Chevrons are scheduled to play in late October with the three-match ODI series likely to be played in Multan while the three T20Is will be played in Rawalpindi.
